Guests of the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong hotel will not be disappointed with the view. This hotel is located half a kilometer above the sea level, in the iconic International Commerce Centre, overlooking Kowloon and the entire Hong Kong island.
To be exact, it is 490 meters above sea level at least, and The Ritz Carlton occupies floors 102 to 118 of the ICC. Naturally, the main attraction here is the astonishing view over the Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong’s cityscape, but the creators of the hotel pulled all the best talent to design the interiors of these sixteen floors to be worthy of the location.
The WOW factor
Elegant and ultra-modern, with hints of Asian styles, and no expense spared, the spaces of the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong are designed to impress and wow. And perhaps this mixture of glass, chrome, marble, metal, Swarovski crystals, water cascades, lighted floors, and sculpted walls are too rich for a more refined taste.
Thankfully, the rooms, designed by LTW Designworks from Singapore, have soothing themes, with the design that does not try to compete with the spectacular panorama outside.
Decorated in shades of beige, with dark woods and thick carpets, guest rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including high-end telescopes.
Restaurants and spa
Guests of the Ritz have a good choice when comes to dining. The restaurants and bars include the excellent Tin Lung Heen, serving Cantonese cuisine, Tosca, with stylish open kitchen (southern Italian menu), the modern Lounge & Bar—and finally Pastry Gems, a delightful patisserie located in the arrival lobby—are all on the 102nd floor. Only one floor up, and there is another café, The Chocolate Library, serving some delicious snacks and chocolate drinks.
The most impressive is Ozone, on the 118 floor—the world’s highest bar. At 490 meters, Ozone is not much lower than the Victoria Peak viewing platform. Ozone serves drinks and Asian tapas in a sensational interior, which looks like it was just used as a set of a Hollywood SF blockbuster.
Guests seeking tranquility and peace the Ritz-Carlton welcomes at Spa by ESPA (floor 116), with nine luxurious massage rooms, twenty-meter indoor pool, and fitness center.
